We traveled to Thailand, by air, for a short get away. After some complications in obtaining actual flights (due to travel agents who couldn't read) the day actually arrived. Of course we took the long way around because the cost was lower, so fly to Delhi and then Bangkok and a 3 1/2 hour drive to Juniper Tree/Dolphin Bay christian retreat centre. All went fairly smoothly, lots of baggage checks (we only took carry-on). The one gal in Kathmandu liked my eyeshadow! 3 check in order to board leaving Kathmandu. Crazy!!

Ok, so we arrived late, 10 pm at Juniper Tree. The place was quiet and the guard showed us to our room. It was lovely and warm and the room was alright. Clean and large. Hit the hay because it was a long day. Awoke to roosters crowing, birds singing and the sound of waves, all good sounds. All meals are in the common dining room. Breakfast was always the same just different variations of eggs.

We decided to rent a scooter so we
could explore further up and down the road and Libby told us about a Thai restaurant and a cool beach spot. So on Wednesday that's what we did. We didn't even bring any ID (forgot) but found a massage place that was renting scooters. 300 Thai Bhat for all day (24 hours) and away we went (had to gas up though on the main road). We scooted along the ocean front road and we had to stop for a pop because we were hot and dry.
